Hello again!  I have finally found a minute to update my blog!  What a summer I have had!  If you scroll down, you will see all the neat things my  husband and I have been doing!

This post is for my Halloween Card swap sponsored by My Crafting Channel.

I have to say, if I didn't have my Cricut, I would be lost.  The ghost on the fence was a thought in my head for soooooo long.  I just couldn't figure out how to get it onto paper.  With my Cricut, I was able to make my vision a reality and I love the results.  The only thing I didn't do was take a video of the little spidey wobbler.


For this card, I cut two bags and two rectangles to fit inside.  I squeezed a thin line of glue onto the edges of the inside of the bag and placed the two bags together.  I stamped my greeting onto one rectangle and glued empty mini candy wrappers (without the candy) in between the two rectangles.  Then I slid the candy center inside the bag!  Glitter glue makes the words sparkle and a little chalking makes the bag look filled. This card fit into a 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 envelope which was lucky because I didn't measure it before I cut it! WHEW!


For this card, I cut a spider and two lacy labels with shadows.  
Orange web paper on front and inside, black metallic behind green label.  
Some glitter pen work and google eyes brings Mr. Spidey to life!  
Mr. Spidey was placed on an Action Wobble, green web ribbon was embellished with green rhinestones. 
 Inside, the sentiment is stamped on a green label.  
Next time I will attempt to make a video of the Action Wobble in motion.


This is by far my favorite card.  It took me a seriously long time to execute my idea, but I am so happy with the results!  I measured the base card first for this one.  Learned my lesson from the first card. 
Starry night paper backs the little pumpkin patch. Chalking gives the pumpkins some dimension.  
The little sign is cut from barn wood printed paper and the wrought iron fence from black metallic.  
A little yellow moon smiles above the vellum ghost hanging on the fence.  I love how you can see the fence through the little ghost.  His little friend, the crow, stands sentry on the post!  I love this card!
